Eddie tells Ruth that the plans for Clarrie's birthday are well in hand, despite a hiccup earlier in the week which Nic's managed to sort out.

Phoebe encourages anxious Josh as he gets ready to pitch his business proposition to David and Ruth. While David helps Jill weed, she says it's wonderful that Josh wants to take on the egg business. And with Pip getting a good placement in Yorkshire, David must be proud of his children.

Later David and Ruth are impressed by Josh's presentation, particularly his well-researched plans to sell 'free-range on pasture' eggs. However they're concerned about how much time it will take. When Josh asks to borrow £500 to add to his savings so he can buy his share, Ruth and David say they'll discuss it and get back to him.

Afterwards, impressed Ruth says they seem to have given birth to the next Alan Sugar!

Pip's cross when David says she can't borrow the car to drive to uni tomorrow as he's using it.
She tells Ruth and David she needs to borrow £800 from them towards buying a more expensive new (second hand) car that she's sourced. But David's adamant. If she can't afford the car, she'll have to find a cheaper one, and that's that.
